The lack of gravity seems to be a widespread worry among artists in today’s Booth lineup. This morning, India Shawn admitted that without her man by her side, she feels like she’s in danger of Floating Away. Floating Away is also a concern of Florida phenom Wrekonize, but the feeling of weightlessness he describes on his latest #WrekWednesdays release has less to do with his love life than his smoking habits. Over WLPWR‘s disorienting sample work, the ¡MAYDAY! frontman spits intricate bars through a thick haze of blunt smoke. Joining Wrek for the remix, R.A. The Rugged Man shows off his polysyllabic chops in a hilarious middle 16 (“You less of a threat than the Pope in pajamas / You’re softer than Barry Manilow singing Copacabana”), and Jarren Benton lends his rapid-fire flow to the final verse. Fans can find the album version of Floating Away on the headliner’s acclaimed The War Within LP, released last year via Strange Music.
